Highly recommend them.

    I wore out several sets of DWS on my ZX3 2.3, but they discontinued them a couple years ago. I was very disappointed, as those were the best tire I'd found for the Focus.

    I'm now on my second set of Hankook Ventus V2 Concept 2's and they're smooth and reasonably quiet, but not as grippy as the DWS's were. They may actually last a bit longer though.

    Before the Conti's I went through several sets of Kumho Ecsta AST's. They gripped well, but wore out fast and would not stay balanced. I used to have to rebalance the Kumho's every 5-10K miles. Only got around 20K from them as well.

    I have bridgestone potenzas on 17" rims. Noise was loud at first but now bearly noticable. The bridgestones are my summer setup.

    I run pirelli p-zeros all seasons on the stock rims for wintertime. They seem louder than the bridgestones but honestly i haven't noticed any excessive noise.

    If someone deals with all weather types such as rain, snow, etc...it's easier to just have an AST, given the overall changes that could occur frequently.

    I have AST's on my ST, and I love them. Quite, reliable, durable, and year round use. While I miss the look of a nice summer tire, the added benefits of AST's make it a no brainer for me

    Sounds like op needs some pilot sport 4S. I wish I could afford them. Think I'm going to go with the general gmax RS or the Firehawk Indy 500. only thing that gets me about the fire Hawks is that they're not symmetrical so it it's like there should be a left and right tire.

    My point is that there are summer tires that can handle rain better than all season. Pilot 4 or 4S seem to be in this class. Along with general gmax RS or the Firehawk Indy 500.
    OP wrote nothing about snow, ice or cold weather.

    But beware, there are summer tires that are for dry weather only. Tire rack calls them Extereme Performance. They are usually for track or auto-x.
